Welcome to the North Central Region

About Us

North Central RegionWe are the North Central Region Water Network – a 12-state collaboration between Extension water resource professionals and university, federal, state, NGO and industry partners. We are new in structure, but built upon decades of USDA-funded water programming in the Great Lakes and Heartland regions, and North and South Dakota. Our relationships are anchored by a core team of Extension-based state water representatives and Extension Directors throughout the region.
